The Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG has started developing a fifth-generation carrier-based fighter that will be made using stealth technology. This is reported by a source in the military-industrial complex.
вЂњNow there is a stage of computer modeling, the first prototypes of the machine are planned to be released in the next few years,вЂќ the source said.
According to him, a version of a fighter with vertical takeoff and landing may also appear within the framework of the project.вЂќ The aircraft, presumably, will be made in the dimension of the MiG-35.
The source added that the aircraft will be designed as part of the complex вЂ” a deck aircraft plus an unmanned aerial vehicle weighing more than 10 tons, which will be made according to the вЂњflying wingвЂќ aerodynamic scheme. The device will either refuel the plane or strike together with it. The UAV will also use the developments on the вЂњScatвЂќ UAV.
Earlier it was reported that a military control aircraft in case of a nuclear war will appear in Russia.
